In this kitchen, the standout item is the copper vent hood. Brick on the wall serves as an ideal backdrop for the hood's patina. Here, a thin brick veneer, which is easier to install than full-size brick and costs less, is used.
"The warmth of the brick, copper hood, and countertops make the kitchen attractive from any vantage point," says designer Louine "Boo Boo" Heathcott.
